Glasgow International 2020

Joanna Peace

Joanna Peace is an artist, writer and educator based in Glasgow.

She has contributed to exhibitions, events, residencies and publications across the UK and internationally. Peace is a lecturer in Sculpture & Environmental Art at the Glasgow School of Art and facilitates participatory projects with a number of organisations.

At the crux of her practice is the act of writing – an act which is transformed into myriad public forms. Writing becomes publication, becomes performance, becomes the genesis of moving image. Writing becomes support for others’ exhibitions and becomes the catalyst for building community. Her longstanding interest in psychological and structural space and female subjectivity demands that her work emerges from direct experience, seeking to extend the sensation of particular bodies in particular places.

Cabinet Interventions


A collaboration between ten artists and the National Trust for Scotland, Cabinet Interventions interrogates the role of material culture in defining place. In post-Brexit Scotland, how might often-contested identities and histories be articulated through institutions such as the Trust?

In 2017 the artists spent time in residence at Pollok House, exploring the cultural, political, historical, ecological and sensorial context of the site. This exhibition draws upon that research and dialogue to present sound, film, sculpture, text and performance.

Supported by The Royal Society of Edinburgh and Glasgow School of Art.
